The department's goal is to provide the highest quality of emergency service through prevention, preparedness, response and recovery programs, to promote community awareness and participation in fire prevention and disaster preparedness.

Customer-Centric Strategic Plan

In April 2015, we completed our first Customer-Centric Strategic Plan. This plan was developed through the valued cooperation of community residents, area administrators, fire officers, firefighters and staff members. This plan will provide a framework to expand the continued delivery of excellent fire, emergency medical, rescue and fire prevention services to our community. On behalf of the Lemont Fire Protection District Board of Trustees, I would like to thank those individuals who dedicated their time and energy to assist in creating our plan. This document is a dynamic tool that will be updated as projects are completed and performance benchmarks are achieved. Please take a few minutes to familiarize yourself with our Vision for Excellence.

Are Sparklers Really Safe

Hardworking Americans look forward to summer vacations, camping, family reunions, picnics, and the Fourth of July. Summertime, however, also brings fires and injuries due to fireworks and outdoor cooking. Each year, in the United States, more than 3,500 children and adults receive injuries from sparklers. Most people do not realize that the tip of sparkler can burn up to as high as 1,800 degrees Fahrenheit, which is enough to cause third degree burns. This temperature is hot enough to warp, melt and sag steel. Many adults place a sparkler in the hands of a child, unaware of these dangers. The safest way to enjoy fireworks is to attend a public display conducted by trained professionals. More than 80% of E.R. fireworks injuries involve fireworks consumers are permitted to use.
